Open Quote This once a great school is rapidly decorating because of the lack of a morale principal. She has repeatedly abused her authority and does nothing to improve the school morale with her depressing appearance and non caring attitude. She does not accept her responsibility diligently or even reasonably so. No good times for the staff and pupils must be her motto. Just wish she would resign. Let someone with more enthusiasm for the better quality of life, education, perks and some little fun for the pupils. So sad. Very sad for the past 7 years. Please resign Mrs. Nun, Please. I know that this school will prosper so much without your dead weight. Thank you in advance for considering this option for your staff and students. This will be a much better school with out you as you don't care. Kind Regards, Very Concerned Parent Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
